  1. I'm sending lots of love! This is only my second time trying, but that feeling of not having/being able to plan a future or for a future (in my opinion) makes me feel like I don't have any of my shit together. Like you, I want it bad enough to try again, however I think I'm going to take the time and do some serious reflecting and think about what a ten year plan would like like with a PhD program and without one. I feel like all of us have given academia/higher academia so many pieces of ourselves, and I know for myself, in 2020 I'm going to take SOME of those pieces back (I put a lot of my self worth into academia lolll fml) and I think others should try the same.
  2. LOL being prepared for next year actually isn't a bad idea, I personally should start studying for the GRE now I'm hoping within the next couples of weeks I can email some of my top POI's and thank them for previous correspondences and let them know I plan on applying next year because that can't hurt right? I have been doing some post-bacc research just because it seems like a good time being able to leave my home town for a summer/semester, but I'm not too sure how beneficial that will be hahaha. I don't have a bad set up right now, one part time job for money and one part time paid research position for money and well research. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel any pressure to do 'more' and move out or move on or do SOMETHING else. @Chugwater2020 WE SHALL PREVAIL
  3. So...while I should continue to be optimistic about hearing back from schools, that is taking too much energy out of me so instead I'm researching plan B's, C's, and D's...all the way to Z. How's everyone else faring?
  4. I got an interview at the school I work at last year, but got waitlisted, and ultimately, never accepted. And for the most part it DOES suck. I was a little embarrassed, but everyone in my lab (PI and phd students) were sooo supportive and if anyones going to understand it's them.
  5. just knowing you want to upvote it is enough for me <33333333 (but also I had that vision clear in my head from the moment I woke up and had to make it for myself, my friends outside of phd applications/academia do not find me as amusing so thank u)
  6. Yeah I second everyone suggesting to make sure the clothes fit right and comfortably before going. Last year I interviewed at once school (my undergrad) and my button up shirt kept popping open and (me being me) I don't wear tank tops or undershirts EVER so its just full frontal chest. There were a few times I had to walk/sit with my portfolio in front of my chest (which looks super awkward and uninviting) until I could get to the bathroom to button my blouse again 😐
  7. Has anyone heard from University of Central Florida? things have been so quiet......
  8. I have secondhand trauma from this oh my god I'm so sorry
  9. I'm VERY happy the IT guy at my job has no idea what this is and I hope he never finds out because he would definitely block it 😂
  10. oH SO THIS IS WHY THEY WON'T JUST END OUR SUFFERING (someone at Memphis said the exact same thing to me, they wait and see if anything else opens up 😓)
  11. Yeah that's what I did for most of them I believe, I had to google who it was or find at least a FAQ about where to direct my questions to and I just chose the email I found or that they suggested!
  12. Good Morning! I hope this email finds you well! I am a Fall 2020 PhD applicant and I was curious about the status of my application? I know some interviews have already been extended, but I'm unsure if there will be any more. Thank you for your time! That's word for word what I said!
  13. I just don't understand how anyone can think that's okay 😶 Of course, yes, people are busy, things get pushed aside, but at my day job if I just casually didn't do something that is apart of my job description (and yes letting applicants know their status SHOULD be apart of SOMEONES job, even if it's a computer) I would be fired lol. It definitely feels like 'wow not only did I NOT get an interview/waitlisted, I wasn't even acknowledged!!!'
